Be Connected: Backups – Protect Yourself!

February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm


Data backups – we know we need them, but far too often, we forget to give them their due attention until it’s too late. Don’t get caught unaware when a sudden data loss strikes your school or district. Join this week’s edition of Be Connected and learn the latest about education data backups. During this session, we’ll cover the kinds of data you should backup, best practices for securing that data, and the most trusted products for creating a reliable data backup solution.

Be Connected is a new, weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected!
